Although we don’t have any firm benchmarks, the user was able to calculate a performance estimate based on the speed of the processor and earlier engineering samples. According to the post, the i9-12900K should hit a multi-core score of around 11,300 in Cinebench R20, which is around 900 points higher than the Ryzen 9 5950X.


Someone with access to a Core i9-12900K says it can hit 5.3GHz, which could mean the processor will outperform AMD's Ryzen 9 5950X.

IIEC this is a DDR5 platform and it's only slightly ahead of AMD it seems. I don't think AMD will be worried.
